A bad relay switch could be the culprit if dash lights remain on after engine starts in a Toyota. Cold weather can also cause these lights to stay on after the engine starts.
If you remove the large (3-4" diameter) rubber tube that starts at the airbox and ends at the engine intake, you will see the throttle plate a couple inches inside the bore of the throttle body (where the hose was attached).
After 50.000 miles or so. Also if the car starts to use more fuel than is normal, or if the engine starts to lose power or if the engine starts to get too noisy.
you can check your engine codes of the module. Is it seized up? Is your engine getting hot? The module will show pending codes even if your "check engine" light isn't on. Another way to check is a little more simple... 1. take your radiator cap off. 2. do this when the car is cool to avoid injury. 3. turn your car on and let it idle for 10 minutes. see if the water in the radiator starts moving. If it doesn't and your engine temp. gauge starts to rise above normal operating temperature, then you have a faulty thermo stat.
Production starts after Labor Day. Dealers will have them some time after that. ed724
If the engine starts and runs but will not respond the the accelerator have the throttle linkage checked. It sounds as if it may have become disconnected somehow.
valve cover was leaking slightly before the power loss, and the engine has 140,000 miles on it.
twice Toyota replaced the idling valve assembly in my 2001 sienna van, under the 36,000 mi warranty, since then I've had it replaced another 2 times. the mechanics say it's a defect in camryand sienna vans. so my last mechanic advised me to use better brand gas like chevron, which i guess helps coz i used to put any type from arco, vons, Costco, generic types. when the idling assy is replaced, it starts and idles fine, assy alone costs about $220-260+

Toyota does manufacture vehicles in the US. If the VIN starts with 2J, it is made in Japan. If the VIN starts with 4T, then it is made in the USA.

Just had the same question and found the answer... According to my manual for a Mercedes-Benz 560SL 1986 It is the Exterior light failure indicator lamp. "The light failure indicator comes on with the key in steering lock posion2 and will go out when the engine starts. If it comes on with the engine running, it indicates a a light failure. If an exterior light fails, the indicator will come on only when that light is switched on. If a brake or turn signal lights fails, the light failure indicator will come on when applying the brake or actuating the turn signal and stay on until the engine is turned off. CAUTION! If additional lighting equiment is installed (auxiliary headlamps ect.) to avoid damage to the failure indicator system, be certain to connect into the fuse before the failure indicator monitor unit.
